Having trouble opening excel files that you export from Access?  Here’s the solution!

Microsoft recently made a change to their OS causing users a headache when opening some excel files as the files appear to be blank.  To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. When the file you’ve exported is downloaded, right click on it and select open in existing folder
  2. Right click on the newly opened file and choose Properties
  3. Select Unblock / OK to open the file.
